reposting Yes it's better than this LG monitor for several reasons, I'll repaste my review.
This monitor is close to perfection for me.
1440p 165hz over DP 1.4 with 10-bit color. The Nano IPS panel looks absolutely fantastic.
Extremely fast response times, Matching TN levels from my trained eye (take this as you will), ufotest shows no ghosting or coronas or anything on the ufos. (1ms faster than the LG panel according to the few reviews I saw, 6.xxms vs 5ms on the lenovo)
Height adjustable Metallic stand with all types of adjustments (Tilt, swivel, etc)
Headphone holder than folds out on the left of the monitor
USB hub with a charging option in the menu
HDMI and Displayport in the box
The menu isn't designed by a monkey and the buttons are on the FRONT of the monitor, thank god. it's not a joystick control monitor but I would rate it as being better than most others.
The monitor accepts a native 4K signal if you're into that.
I play in a dim room and this monitor seems to be really bright to me, I lowered it all the way down to 10 brightness because my eyes were being assaulted by it
The one single downside I give this monitor is probably the fact that there's some Gsync issues on Pascal cards. I think this might be a driver issue but it is fixable here. I eliminated the issue on my monitor completely.

Tbh 4k gaming just isn’t worth it. even the best gpus will struggle to reach 100hz for many games. Unless you go up to 32 inches you’ll struggle to see a difference anyway so i would save some money and go for 1440p. There’s an lg ultra gear one for about 500 bucks that is really good. https://www.amazon.com/LG-27GL850-B-Ultragear-Compatible-Monitor/dp/B07TD94TQF

That AIO cooler is pricey! Just out of curiosity, is there a reason for both monitors being 1080p? I just made the jump from 1080 @120hz to 1440p @144hz and it has been the second best upgrade I’ve made since being into PCs. I highly recommend it! Something like this maybe if it’s in the budget.

Aside from the monitor this build looks like it’s gonna be awesome when you build it! Even with those monitors it’s still great.

My home office looks something like this. Let's talk about the current setup, then talk about improvements.
My main machine is an AMD 1600 + RTX 2060. These parts are both somewhat "old," and I'll talk about that below. That computer is hooked up to 2x 1440p 60 Hz monitors and 1x 1080p 60 Hz monitor. The 1440ps are for gaming and general use. The 1080p is for displaying native 1080p content like streams or shows.
My work machine is a "thin client" based around an Asrock A300W mini-PC. It's plugged into 2x 25-inch 1440p monitors. This machine's only purpose is to hook into my firm's servers.
My Threadripper workstation shares the 2x 25-inch 1440p monitors with the A300W. It has a variety of uses. This Threadripper ran all the simulations and computations for my dissertation. Now it mostly serves as a personal simulation resource, but it can take on work tasks in a pinch.
Main machine: I plan to upgrade this year to a 4000-series Ryzen 8-core chip and whatever the $500-class RTX chip is released this fall. These will be a welcome upgrade to my gaming rig. I plan to ride out Ryzen 4000 and RTX 3000 for a few years.
I plan to upgrade the monitors to a pair of 27GL850 27" 1440p 144hz displays.
The A300W thin client is fine as-is.
I am watching prices and will upgrade my Threadripper as the need arises. Interesting options are the 3970X (32-core), the 3990X (64-core) and whatever the 4000-series TR brings to the table. For now, my 16-core 1950X handles all the jobs I throw at it.
Having adult money is nice.

think this is essentially the same monitor for less but I also don't know if I'm seeing the price you sent in CAD or USD so
nevermind I did the big dumb and confused the price for the 240 hz as the price for the 144 hz carry on seems a good deal
2 points • Jordaneer
If they are the same price, IPS all day, IPS panels are signifcantly better to look at for things that aren't gaming, like media consumption and the like. I have an AOC CQ27G2 (its a VA panel) and the pixels aren't especially fast responding unless you crank the overdrive, but in gaming I don't notice it at all, and that is with an even slower GTG response time than the benq monitor
Honestly, if you are looking for a great monitor, this LG monitor is really well reviewed, it has extremely low response times for an IPS panel and its the same price

LG 27GL850-B is the current favorite price to performance 1440p IPS monitor right now. Also often out of stock but gets restocked several times a week if you are quick.
$370 when Amazon has them in stock.

You can switch rhe motherboard to a B450 to save some money. There is no real difference unless you intend to have continuous high powered processes or insane OCing. Switch your RAM to 2x8gb at 3600mhz. I'm not sure if you intend on doing large file transfers bit that SSD is overkill. Check out the MX500 or WD blue. I'd put these savings into a nice monitor: https://www.amazon.com/LG-27GL850-B-Ultragear-Compatible-Monitor/dp/B07TD94TQF

They also make a cheaper version (LG 27GL83A) with all the same specs, except it doesn’t have the wide color gamut. Some prefer it without since it deals with regular sRGB content better.

I recommend something like this

Right now, i'm only using the KVM switch to switch the keyboard and mouse from the laptop to desktop as KVMs with HDMI and/or DP are very expensive.
I change display inputs manually on the monitors when switch from Laptop to Desktop.
This is my main monitor:

Take a look at the lg models. I recently got two of this 27 inch model (27GL850-B) when they cost 375 early September and they’ve been amazing. Price has gone up though so maybe consider the 32 inch related model on that page which is now a hundred bucks cheaper (makes no sense!).
1 points • Free2Rhymez
I was honestly looking at the This LG but I feel like it might not get the most out of what my PC is capable of. So I guess my price range is open. I spent 700 bucks on the video card, I don't want to go cheap on the monitor when their are better options.

Hello PS fam! I am looking to upgrade my monitor to compliment my incoming PS5! From what I see, the best choice out there right now (reasonably) would be a 1440p 120+Hz monitor. Anyone have recommendations whether for personal use or just from reading? I think right now my top choice is the LG 27GL850 (https://www.amazon.com/LG-27GL850-B-Ultragear-Compatible-Monitor/dp/B07TD94TQF/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8). Thanks, fellas!

Looks similar to LG-27GL850-B
They seem almost the same, 850-B has more USB ports and think is more common in Europe, looking to buy 850-B myself, it's not 1ms, but still one of the fastest around + with good color accuracy.

I'm building a new PC and currently looking at getting a new monitor for gaming in 1440p and 144hz. Below is the current monitor I'm looking at. Any other recommendations that anybody else might have?
This is probably at the higher end of what I'm looking to spend.
1 points • Flight2039Down
I bought the LG 27GL850-B and it’s really nice. I haven’t gotten the chance to push it because it’s temporarily on my MacBook as I am still building my PC slowly.
MacBook is on its last legs, but it drives the monitor nicely. Colors are great.

Only know this suggestion because I plan on getting one myself —
Best IPS 144Hz 1440p gaming monitor out there, in my opinion... (I’m a huge fan for thin-bezel industrial-looks)

(You can go lower in price by selecting another option of the same monitor [without Nano-IPS])
Although, if you’re not too interested in gaming, the above suggestion is probably right — r/monitors might help you out a little better than I can haha.

Nice of her. But probably would’ve been best if she asked for your advice or something. At 75hz, you’d probably just get a max of 1080p with 60hz/60fps... which you wouldn’t really want for Next-Gen.
I’d recommend returning and getting a LG-GN850-B for $399.99 from Best Buy, if possible. (Currently on Sale)
I got that one on Black Friday and am in love. I’m running games 1440p @ 120FPS and can also run Native 4K @ 60FPS with HDR 10.
1ms Response time, comes with G-Sync, but i have it disabled to Run 1440p/120FPS
I dumped my almost 10 year old 1080p 60hz TV so it’s definitely a HUGE NOTICEABLE UPGRADE for me.

No way, which one? I just bought one as well because I’ve got that 4K LG and then a seriously crappy ASUS 1080p that’s about 7 years old and hurts to look at. So I picked up one of these. and it literally just got delivered haha
By the way - if that happens to be the same monitor, I was able to send that seller a screenshot of the price on BH, where it was back ordered for $100 less. Despite being back ordered, this seller still refunded me the difference to do a price match!

1440p at 144 hz is the way to go, in my opinion, for up close PC gaming on a 27 inch monitor. Anything more is diminishing returns. If you need a particular suggestion, I can't recommend this one enough. It's one of the few 1 ms ips monitors out there now.
1 points • Tech_AllBodies
Firstly you should probably swap your choice to the LG G850. Literally the same price, but the best motion clarity out of all 1440p IPS monitors.
But then you should keep the refresh rate at its top 144 Hz, and then use Gsync/Freesync. This will dynamically change the refresh rate to what your PC is actually outputting at the time.
So it will be 144 Hz when you're on the desktop or playing easy to run games, but then it'll lower it to 80 Hz, then 83 Hz the next second, etc. if you're playing something your PC can't achieve the full 144 Hz in.
If you run it at 60 Hz you're just wasting your money, and not taking advantage of the technology designed to mitigate this situation (i.e. gsync/freesync).
